I have been craving grits ever since having G's yummy cheese grits casserole this past weekend. Well, knowing how much cheese and butter goes into that particular delicacy, I decided to look for something a little (emphasis on the little) less sinful and found this recipe on epicurious:
Grits with Goat Cheese and Chives
3 1/2 cups chicken broth
1/2 cup water
1 cup quick-cooking grits
1/3 cup sliced fresh chives (or green onions)
4 ounces soft fresh goat cheese
fresh chives, cut into 2-inch pieces
Bring broth and water to boil in heavy medium saucepan. Gradually stir in grits. Reduce heat to low; cover and cook 4 minutes. When thickened to consistency of thin mashed potatoes, add sliced chives and cheese. Stir until cheese melts. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Top with chive pieces.

I love grits, I love goat cheese, and I love chives ~ what could be better? P.S. The photo is of a glorious patch of chives in the Paca House garden in Annapolis.
